Measuring Radioactive Methane with the Liquid Scintillation Counter

By Alexander J. B. Zehnder, Beat Huser and Thomas D. Brock


Although a gas proportional counter is the most convenient method of measuring the radioactivity of fixed gases such as methane, it cannot be used when high nonradioactive concentrations of methane are present in the gas phase, due to quenching. If only methane and carbon dioxide are present in radioactive form in the gas phase, a liquid scintillation method for measuring these substances can be used. The procedure is described in detail, and the solubility of methane in liquid scintillation cocktails is determined
